Default The 2nd Annual Robot Tournament (Thunderdome) begins...music please!




Mr. Y: Hello and welcome to the 2nd Annual Robot Tournament! Unlike last year's mockery led by my disgraced former collaborator Mr. X, no shenanigans will take place in this year's competition!

*cough*

So let's meet the designers of this year's tourney! Why, it's a myriad of robotic genius! We have Johnny Unusual, Issun, Ghost from Spelunker, Bongo, MetManMas, Regulus, SpoonyBardOL, Sarge, Kalir, RT-55J, Daikaiju, and WildcatJF!

Thanks to their contributions we are able to pit 64 robot masters to the test to see who is the best of the best! And per the rules, all are recreations of past designs submitted by Dr. Thomas Right...sorry, Light, and Dr. Albert Wily.

I know, Wily deserves that vehement disdain from the crowd, given his multiple attempts to rule the world, but you cannot deny his talent for creating robots!

So the tournament will begin on Monday, February 11, with two sets of matches, 1v1. We put a lot of work into their theme songs, so I hope you will feel the energy as their anthems soar through the arena! Once the initial round has eliminated half our competition, we will move into a similar format for the quarter finals. However, when we hit the semi finals the remaining 16 will be thrown into a battle royale and only 4 will remain on top! The finals will prove the greatest robot master of them all!

I know I can't wait for this all to begin, but the bracket team has notified me they need a little more time to make this as random and fair as possible. In the initial round, no match will feature the same robot master against itself. I think it would be too quick to have these clone matches, don't you? I love a good clone brawl.

So, friends, we will be back tomorrow with the first two matches of the 2nd Annual Robot Tournament! Place your bets now, and please make sure all checks are made out to the "Dr. Wily Memorial Fund", the non-profit organization working to rebuild our fair world after the fiend's multiple attempts to conquer it. Thank you!

I think that worked

I was going to make an esoteric image vote but it turns out I actually really like Saturn. I might have to vote against my own robot...

While I love the normal version of Shadow Man's theme, that remix loses enough of the charm that I have to go diving block.

We had two late votes today that I'm going to let slide, but please get votes in before 5 PM PST on the future rounds

I'll get the results and the next two matches up momentarily!

Well, we're in an interesting spot right off the bat, where both matches are tied. So I need a vote for both matches to split the tie.

Only one robot from each match can continue on. Who will win? Vote today and find out tomorrow! Voting ends at 5 PM PST. Anyone can vote, including the audience! We hope you enjoy these contests!
